We have had a Turnitin subscription for several years now and after a very slow beginning it is now quite well embedded in several curriculum areas and stats show a massive increase in online marking over the past 2 years, However, we had a few instances where there were service outages and teachers were understandably confused. The best place to find out about issues appeared to be the Turnitin Status twitter feed. I thought about it a little bit and realised that it would be very easy to embed the twitter feed on the Turnitin Direct submission page. It takes up a bit of the page, but it’s a nice bit of security to know that staff and students will know if there are any issues.
